1996 Z71 4x4 transmission Problem

I have a 1996 Z71 4x4 with a 350. I have reverse, but when I put it in drive, it doesn`t want to go.... I jacked up the rear end, and the other side will go forward and reverse but the drivers side rear won`t do anything....I took off the tire and the hub - then it will go either way! I put the hub and tire back on, and I am right back where I started! Any ideas as to what I need to do to get this taken care of? Is it a tranny problem or a rear-end problem? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Welcome to Hotrodders.com

We do not use "PLEASE HELP" in thread title lines here. The folks here are very helpful and know you have questions.

What is the mileage on this truck transmission? Any recent repair work or the problem just started over nite?

It sounds like a transmission problem if the truck will not move the weight of the vehicle.

Often if the tires are off the ground they will spin simply from the rotating mass of parts inside the transmission giving the false thought that full power is at work.

One tire only spinning is not uncommon in an open differential (non posi).... the brake on one wheel may be slightly tighter than the other side.

Thanks for the response....

We recently had the tranny rebuilt ..... so perhaps it will be done again! Any thoughts on what the problem is? On the rear tires, is there a way to release the brake a bit to know if it could be hanging up? I can't turn it by hand either way.... Appreciate the help, I am learning...

Ok, I now understand fully that the rearend is not the problem.... Any suggestions as to what I could try? Does the shifter box on the side have any type of adjustment that would help?

I'm thinking your parking brake is hanging up on one side. Can you spin that tire by hand with the transmission in neutral?
